Intra- and Interobserver Agreement during the Assessment of the Different Stages of Root Development Using 4 Radiographic Classifications.

J Endod 2021 Mar 8. Epub 2021 Mar 8.

Research Institute in Biomedical Sciences, University Center of Health Sciences (CUCS), University of Guadalajara, Guadalajara, Mexico.

Introduction: This study analyzed intra- and interobserver agreements during radiographic assessment of the different stages of root development using the dichotomous, Moorrees, Demirjian, and Cvek classifications, as well as the effect of the observer's level of experience on the result.

Methods: Two hundred eighty-five digital periapical radiographs were examined via visual inspection by 3 experienced and 3 nonexperienced observers (n = 6) under strict technological and viewing conditions. After observer calibration, determination of the presence or absence of an open apex and the assignment of a root development stage according to the different subdivisions of the 4 indexes were performed.

Cut-off for the legal ages in the Portuguese Population by Third Maturity Index: Measures of Accuracy.

Arch Oral Biol 2021 Feb 22;125:105089. Epub 2021 Feb 22.

Department of Forensic Medicine, University of Sechenov, Moscow, Russia; AgEstimation Project, FOR.MED.LAB, University of Macerata, Macerata, Italy. Electronic address:

Objectives: The aim of this study is to estimate the cut-off points for the Portuguese legal ages through the I, and to compare them with the methods of Demirjian, Nolla and Moorrees.

Design: The lower third molars were analyzed on 348 orthopantomography's aged between 12 and 23 years in a Portuguese Population. The images were analyzed by ImageJ and the cut-off points were calculated for the respective legal ages of 14, 16, 18 and 21 years old. Read More

Detecting menarcheal status through dental mineralization stages?

Am J Phys Anthropol 2016 10 17;161(2):367-73. Epub 2016 Jun 17.

UMR 5199 PACEA, CNRS, University of Bordeaux, Bâtiment B8, Allée Geoffroy Saint Hilaire-CS 50023-F-33400, Talence, France.

Menarche is an indicator frequently used to study variation in growth, development, and related health conditions among members of living populations. As a life event, menarche is often associated with changes in an individual's social identity. The reproductive lifespan, which for females starts with menarche, is a paramount feature of palaeodemographic studies. Read More

Controversies in age estimation from developing teeth.

Ann Hum Biol 2015 15;42(4):397-406. Epub 2015 Jun 15.

a Queen Mary University of London, Bart's and The Royal School of Medicine and Dentistry, Institute of Dentistry , Turner Street , London , UK.

Background: Numerous dental reference data exist to estimate age from developing permanent teeth.

Aim: To compare the performance of reference data that provide a point estimate using the developing second molar.

Methods: Performance of several methods estimating age using mandibular second molar formation was compared using the Maber test sample (age = 3-16) of 946 dental radiographs. Read More

Chronology of the development of the deciduous dentition in Mediterranean population.

Forensic Sci Int 2014 Jul 15;240:95-103. Epub 2014 Apr 15.

Department of Legal Medicine, Toxicology and Physical Anthropology, Medicine Faculty, University of Granada, Granada 18012, Spain.

The objective of this study of the maturation of deciduous dentition was to offer a novel age-estimation method for Mediterranean populations, using the osteological collection of fetuses, infants, and young children in the Anthropology Laboratory of Granada University (Spain) as study material. After excluding premature newborns and infants with disease, the final study sample comprised 1303 deciduous teeth suitable for analysis from 138 individuals (80 male, 58 female) aged between 24 weeks in utero and 6 years. Eleven mineralization stages were defined for the dental maturation analysis, and the alveolar emergence was also studied. Read More

Third molar development: evaluation of nine tooth development registration techniques for age estimations.

J Forensic Sci 2013 Mar 13;58(2):393-7. Epub 2013 Feb 13.

Faculty of Medicine, School of Dentistry, Forensic Odontology Department, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Kapucijnenvoer 7, Leuven, B-3000, Belgium.

Multiple third molar development registration techniques exist. Therefore the aim of this study was to detect which third molar development registration technique was most promising to use as a tool for subadult age estimation. On a collection of 1199 panoramic radiographs the development of all present third molars was registered following nine different registration techniques [Gleiser, Hunt (GH); Haavikko (HV); Demirjian (DM); Raungpaka (RA); Gustafson, Koch (GK); Harris, Nortje (HN); Kullman (KU); Moorrees (MO); Cameriere (CA)].

Estimating age and the likelihood of having attained 18 years of age using mandibular third molars.

Br Dent J 2010 Oct 15;209(8):E13. Epub 2010 Oct 15.

Senior Clinical Lecturer, Institute of Dentistry, Bart's and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry, Queen Mary University of London, London, UK.

Objective: Age estimation methods using mandibular third molar (M3) root formation were tested. Diagnostic accuracy of M3 to predict age 18 was tested.

Design: Methods were tested on a target sample of 300 dental panoramic radiographs (age 11-25). Read More

Bias and accuracy of age estimation using developing teeth in 946 children.

Am J Phys Anthropol 2010 Dec;143(4):545-54

Institute of Dentistry, Bart's and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry, Queen Mary University of London, London E1 2AD, England, UK.

Developing teeth are used to assess maturity and estimate age in several disciplines. The aim of the study was to determine which of the most well known dental age estimation methods was best at estimating age. The target sample of dental radiographs (N = 946, ages 3–16) was described by Maber et al. Read More

Testing standard methods of dental age estimation by Moorrees, Fanning and Hunt and Demirjian, Goldstein and Tanner on three South African children samples.

J Forensic Odontostomatol 2009 Dec 1;27(2):20-8. Epub 2009 Dec 1.

Department of Oral and Maxillo-facial Pathology, University of the Western Cape, Tygerberg 7505, South Africa.

Dental age estimation of juvenile skeletal remains has utilized the methods of Moorrees ,Fanning and Hunt (1963) [MFH] and Demirjian,Goldstein and Tanner (1973) [DGT] for many years with various results. The Demirjian et al method has been tested by several authors on their population groups with varying results.The use of these methods to age the skeletal remains of South African children by the author has not been successful.

Dental age related tables for children of various ethnic groups in South Africa.

J Forensic Odontostomatol 2009 Dec 1;27(2):29-44. Epub 2009 Dec 1.

Department of Oral and Maxillo-facial Pathology, University of the Western Cape, Tygerberg 7505, South Africa.

The standard age estimation methods of Moorrees, Fanning & Hunt (1963) and that of Demirjian, Goldstein & Tanner (1973) have been shown by several authors to be inaccurate when applied to their juvenile population. This was similarly found to be true in South African children. Pantomographic radiographs of samples of South African children of White, Coloured, Indian and Black origin were used to develop dental age related tables for these ethnic groups. Read More
